Galvanic Alchemist Discussion

GreatGoofini on Wood'ya STOP?! [PDH]

Yea I saw this card and immediate laughed and thought Persistent Petitioners . I am actually already running Mobilize which is amazing haha. The other cards feel slow or not quite right. If i'm targeting petitioners I'm usually going to have to untap multiple for it to be effective. Cards like Freed from the Real and Galvanic Alchemist aren't too bad since they're repeatable. If I'm targeting Wood Sage I'm worried that over using him will lead to me milling too many needed cards since there's only like 3 shuffle effects in pauper and I'm running all three, and one of them is Devious Cover-Up ! Haha

This deck can go infinte with basically any card with the word "untap" in the text.

So: Freed from the Real , Vigean Graftmage , Galvanic Alchemist , Pestermite , and Peregrine Drake would all have to go. Without Pestermite and Drake, Ghostly Flicker and Displace are only OK cards, so you could drop them as well if you like.

Drift of Phantasms , Muddle the Mixture , Vedalken AEthermage , Expedition Map , and Merchant Scroll are the tutors you'd be dropping.

As for what to add... Whatever you want, my dude.

This deck generates the mana to go very very big. Ulamog's Crusher , Hand of Emrakul , Eldrazi Devastator are good face-beaters for big-mana decks. Oakgnarl Warrior and Krosan Tusker are pretty solid choices too. Wildheart Invoker is a good mana-sink. Rush of Knowledge is important for the go-big plan.

This deck also has the resources to go wide, if you like - you could fill the deck with small-mana value spells (evasive creatures, equipment, auras, counterspells, control), and pour your enormous piles of mana into Lore Weaver to draw into all of it.

Sky's the limit, my friend.

I like it. Also, I have some suggestions:

1) Infinite Mana is WAY easier with a couple enchantments that make lands tap for extra mana, like Wild Growth or Market Festival. There are about 10 legal in pauper.

2) You should probably be running Vigean Graftmage and Galvanic Alchemist. They're pretty gross with Ley Weaver.

I've got a similar deck if you want to check it out: PDH(UG) - Harold they're lesbians

I love this so much! One suggestion since I saw Axebane Guardian in there. It goes infinite with Freed from the Real or Galvanic Alchemist if you have 3 other or more defenders on the board. Just another win-con! :)

This might be long ONLY because I have a lot to say that may be helpful. Bear with me here!

Galvanic Alchemist would be a wonderful addition to this deck, as you can use it's Soulbond ability on both Axebane Guardian and Doorkeeper, and multiple of all three can potentially lead to an infinite mana/mill combo if you make the correct choices.

Returned Phalanx would be good as well, as it would give some some means of offense, should you have the opportunity to attack.

I would highly recommend that you have some Reach in this deck, as you currently have no way of defending against creatures with Flying. To this end Archers of Qarsi could work really well. Aim High would allow you to untap Axebane Guardian and Doorkeeper as well as give them +2/+2 AND Reach. You should definitely have a 4-of of this. Shape the Sands and Spidery Grasp are likewise potentially helpful.

I really like the thought of using Aspect of Gorgon in this deck. It would turn one of your Defenders into a sturdy, murder-y machine. Considering adding some of these! If not those then maybe Coat with Venom?

Consider dropping or reducing the amount of Gatecreeper Vine. You don't need a lot of mana for this deck at all, so having a weak Defender that pulls a land card won't do too terribly much for you. There are other Defenders that could take that spot and work better for what you want to do.

As your Sideboard would possibly suggest, having a set of counter spells would be helpful in this deck. There are plenty of Common counter spells, like Cancel, Calculated Dismissal, and Counterspell. With counter spells I usually tend to avoid because it can be mana-intensive, but I don't think that would be too big of a deal for this deck so if it works, go for it!

Okay... I think I'm done. I hope this helps!

Galvanic Alchemist was a bit too slow and the worst card. Surprise best card? Judge of Currents! Burn is miserable against it. Added a bunch of cards to the Maybeboard to take better advantage of Stonybrook Banneret.

I have a 5 colour Defender deck. If you run Galvanic Alchemist, you can make your Axbanes infinite mana with just 4 defenders. Just read Freed form the Real, that is probs better. xD
